Georgia Boy meets Illinois girl in Texas many years ago...
and that's how the story started for my sister and her husband who is celebrating his birthday tomorrow and with a party on Saturday! So I've got to get this mailed a.s.a.p.!
Travel theme was a good prompt and thanks to Paper Issues having a travel/globe/As the World Turns challenge this was a convenient for me to do for my b-in-l.
You can find the prompt on both the blog site and the Facebook community. The link for the site can be found here for Paper Issues: https://paperissues.blogspot.com/2018/11/as-world-turns.html
Another challenge to link to is Little Red Wagon's new prompt that started today about sentiments. Imke wants everyone to have the card focus be on the message/text, so that's why I stamped and stenciled in the center of the banner section on my card front.

CKC blog has a delightful inspirational curated kit from Citrus Twist called Little Things for its November counterfeiting challenge. This card has darker tones of the blues and creams found in the kit and with the PI travel theme I'm thinking about having a broad travel theme for my copy cat kit that I'm still shopping through my stuff for. [think weather shapes like clouds, stars, and rainbows along with travel shapes like circles/spheres/globes, cameras, maps, trains, and more] I had set aside these papers last night but not necessarily for my b-in-l. But with PI's Nov 5 announced As The World Turns and the CCMWF sketch plus the LRW focus on sentiments, the puzzle/card pieces just seem to fall into place for a masculine birthday card. CKC has had several posts already this month, so I'll use the 2nd one for November titled "Just the Gist" for the link:
And the inside panel was kept simple using more of the globe patterned CS:
This sketch is from CCMWF (Christian Card-Makers~ Women's Fellowship) a secret group through Facebook. Instead of stars I used buttons. Banner placement went up to the top edge due to using a A2 size card; this also affected the gray portion seen in my card as a map/atlas print. Otherwise I'm pretty accurate to the sketch for my interpretation:

Isn't it great when a plan comes together that you didn't even plan!?!!! Must be a God thing!!!
